Japanese Books with Joelle Webber

November 11, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

$40.00 – $50.00

This class is part of a 3-week series of book arts classes that will cover various techniques and materials including Decorative Paste PapersJapanese Books, and Long Stitch Books. Each class will focus on a different topic, while we learn the basics of book binding vocabulary and a bit of book binding history. Students can register for each class separately, but are also encouraged to come to all three! Additional workshops are November 4 and November 18.

In the Japanese Books session we will create this Eastern 4-hole stab binding using Western materials, while discussing original Eastern tools & materials. Learn how to use hammers & awls to create the decorative stitching on this book. If time allows, we will explore more complex sewing patterns as well.

Tools & materials provided.
